Welcome back to BrocanteHome. These are incredibly odd times and since isolation began I have been thinking terribly hard about how I want to make the most of my platform to create an online sanctuary for all of us learning to love life at home.
I have of course been backwards and forwards about how best to do this over the years. Utilising third party apps to create forums, shops and course and getting us all in a muddle along the way, but I hope you know that at every turn I have listened. When you didn’t like the community I created at the beginning of the year I closed it to re-think it, and so many of you have told me that there is just to much information in my lovely membership, The Salon, and that is feels overwhelming and so that too needs to be re-invented, and as I suggested at the beginning of 2020, consolidated.

A refuge from chaos and a place to call our own. Not so much a turning away from reality, but an oasis away from it.
So I want to welcome you to a new
A place to retreat too when it all gets too much. Private groups where you can be wholly and fully yourself, scream if you need to at the sheer injustice of today’s society while focusing all that you have got on creating homes where prejudice cannot exist and love is all that matters. It has, you see long been my perhaps deeply priviledged belief, that home is where we all begin and that the more homes across the land rooted in love, the better chance we have as a tolerant, all-inclusive culture.
Much of what I have discovered about myself since the advent of
So welcome to
We are all welcome here. Please never, ever forget that.
A Year of Puttery Treats is quite the loveliest way to start your BrocanteHome journey and to understand what living life the BrocanteHome way means,
With one little domestic to-do for every day of the year, this truly is the way to add a little routine, ritual and teeny celebration to life at home...
